black people are oppressed by white people
black people are poor and disadvantaged and white people are rich and privileged
black people have poor schooling and white people have good schools
black people have little or no influence in culture, business and government and white people have all the power in culture, business and government
they also assert that we are equal.
Where does the equality come from when one one group so clearly dominates over the other in education and power and influence and privilege and economic status?
This idea is summed up in the term “White Privilege.” In a purely Darwinian sense this view means that black people are less fit and the white are more fit and therefore are the evolutionary dominant- more fit, more capable of surviving and thriving in the environment of, in this case, Western Culture, or maybe just Earth in general. (Don’t ask me. This isn’t my stupid theory. I’m just explaining it.)
Furthermore if the entire human race is simply the byproduct of time and chance and evolutionary mechanisms, then why do black lives or any lives matter at all? From an evolutionary and atheistic world view NO lives matter, because “lives” are just accidental byproducts of a blind random chemical process. Matter doing what matter must do according to the laws of physics and chemistry. So nothing matters, nothing has value. Everything is chaos: an accident pre-determined by the initial conditions of the Big Bang which itself has no cause.
DO Black Lives Matter?
Not if Darwin is right. On Darwin, Black lives are the less fit, more ape primates. White lives are the more evolved, less ape primates. And both are meaningless, purposeless accidents destined to oblivion. Destined to go extinct in a universe destined to die. No different than two strains of bacteria competing in a petri dish which is going to be washed clean someday soon.
Unless the Bible is true.
Then Black lives are HUMAN lives, made in the image of God. Endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Then black men and white men, Jews and gentiles, Catholics and Protestants can join hands and sing together in the words of the old Negro Spiritual: Free at Last, Free at Last. Thank GOD ALMIGHTY we are Free at LAST.
We can be forgiven, free, and have life eternal. We can be the sons and daughters of God, the Bride of Christ, citizens of the eternal kingdom of heaven.
If the Bible is right, then black lives are human lives, and human lives matter because God loves us and Jesus paid the price to save us from our sins and bring us home to our heavenly Father.
And the Bible is right. So, yes.
Human lives matter.
All of them.
